HAD A.RlUlir TO FIBE ON HER. Views of Naval Oflicera as to the Case ot the Schooner Lane. Washington, July 1.5. Tho govern ment olliclals here have received no in formation in regard to the firing on the b hoonor Carrio K. Lane by a Spanish war vessel off Capo Antonio. Tho general opinlou of naval officers who read the re p rt of tho affair ns described by Captain Q iti-k is that tho Spaniard did not exceed his authority In overhauling tho schooner, 11 t he latter w."j in tho territory of Cuba. Tae Spanish government, it is held, is inenaeed by tho danger of tho landing of libUfcjtoUnt expeditions on the Cuban coast, aiuTI tg exerting itself to prevent u :h landing fias a right to overhaul and learn the character of any vessel within the three-mile limit that might be sus pected of having on board those enter taining designs agninit the government or a cargo intended for tho insurgents. Captain Q -licks' story shows he paid no attention to the mnB-uf-wur for au hour or mote. This, it is said, probably caused the captain ot tho latter to believe that the schooner was cngagid in filibustering methods, and prompted him to take de cisive action in preventing her escape.
